Noah's Ark is a very popular theme in children's Bible stories. K.A. Mulenga's book Robbie the Raven and Debbie the Dove tells this familiar story from a unique perspective. Robbie and Debbie are good friends and spend their days together. Debbie is very curious and asks Robbie the same three questions every day. Then one day they notice Noah and his family building something unusual. When the ark is finished, they quickly get on the ark before the rains begin. Each of them has a special job that Noah sends them out to do. Robbie leaves first but doesn't return. Debbie's task is different. Will Debbie see her friend again?
As a former Sunday School teacher, Robbie the Raven and Debbie the Dove is a story I would have loved to share with my students. K. A. Mulenga has taken a story that many kids are familiar with and helped kids and adults see it with new eyes. Mulenga shares the reasons why Noah and his family were chosen by God to build the ark. All the other animals are shown, but the two birds are given center stage. The illustrations are colorful and clear, followed by a page of text. Robbie and Debbie will be easy for kids to identify on each page. The layout of the text also makes this ideal for youngsters who have progressed beyond beginning readers. Robbie the Raven and Debbie the Dove provides a different point of view for a well-known story. It is perfect for church and personal libraries.
